Ok so I got done for a fake 1050Ti on ebay a while back, seller has closed up shop, and im stuck with it. Im have been going through the forum seeing those that have gone before! Got the CH341A usb programmer and clip.
But the cheeky bastards Have scratched the markings off the gpu and the bios chip, as far as i can tell, there is a bios chip on the front and back of the board, the front one is still visible, RT8120A the one on the back has been rubbed off , As has the Nvidia GPU model. Gpu-z does not populate most of the information memory type or size etc, the Bios version,(not that it helps i guess). And drivers do not install correctly, But i am hoping someone can figure out the mystery for me as to what card it is and a bios to suit.

Also need to identify the Bios chip as i have tried to read both with no result.

You missed the ONLY Bios chip below the screw hole towards the slot fingers U24 on the rear.
It's most likely a GTS450 Rev2 or GTs550Ti
